14 October 2021

Expert Voices on Atrocity Prevention is a podcast by the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. The podcast, hosted by Global Centre Research Director Jaclyn Streitfeld-Hall, features one-on-one conversations with practitioners from the field of human rights, conflict prevention, atrocity prevention and other related agendas. These conversations aim to provide a glimpse of the personal and professional side of how practitioners approach human rights protection and atrocity prevention.

In this episode we sat down with Charles Petrie, former UN Assistant Secretary-General and author of the infamous “Petrie Report” on the UN’s failings in Sri Lanka. The episode gives detailed insight into Charles’ appointments with the UN around the world, including in Somalia, Rwanda, Myanmar and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as why he left the UN after decades of service. Petrie also discusses the reason for penning his new book, The Triumph of Evil: Genocide in Rwanda and the Fight for Justice, and how the UN must change to become effective at preventing atrocities.
